In Response To: Re: Good explanation, but... (poena.dare #CP#)

: Arg! Why is the name capitalized?

The Marathon Scrapbook says:

The idea of defending the Marathon from a horde of malicious natives was eventually rejected, primarily because the aliens were only defending their planet (an honorable motive) (page 9)


In their place came the Pfhor, a race of alien slavers (who's) intention (was) capturing the colony ship and it's inhabitants. Wiping out hordes of alien slavers on the decks of a crippled colony ship was deemed more ethically satisfying. (page 9 and 11)

So making the Chockisens more than just wild animals would have gone against Bungie's rules.
